Thoughts?

How did the lead official see that? I'm not saying it was or wasn't a foul, but as the lead official I don't think I've ever been looking at the player shooting a three-pointer (unless it's taken from the corner on my side). I mean, that is WAY out of his primary.

The Lead saw it because he had nothing in front of him and a possibility of the ball coming to him. No competitive match-ups around him too. I think it was a good call, but not what you would normally see.

Peace

Crew saver!
In this specific case, the Lead does not have a competitive match-up in his PCA. Thus he expanded helped with the players on the wing. Freeze the video 7 seconds into it. Where would you be looking as Lead? Either on the wing or near the FT line as that is where the closest players are. Now throw in a little awareness of your partners: C is in a great spot and can certainly see the guys in the FT semicircle, but the T stops near the division line and has a poor angle for the shot attempt. So it is clear which partner needs secondary help. Finally, notice the game situation: time & score dictate that a quick basket is needed and alerts us that the trailing team may well go for 3 shortly after getting into the frontcourt. The Lead was ready for that, the Trail wasn't.
While unusual, the Lead did a fantastic job on this play and helped the crew. Clear whack on the right arm of the shooter. Not sure if the C could spot this from his angle across the court.

Thoughts?......That is a foul 100 times out of 100 and MUST be called.

Four players in an "action area" require two sets of eyes. Since Lead had no competitive match ups in his area, he expanded to this action area and got the call right (and he "sold it" so everyone knew what he had).

"Stay in your primary" doesn't mean "put a solid wood fence aroound your primary and never look beyond it"

I agree that the play needed a whistle. The L made the call, and he did a good job of selling it.

Did I notice that the T just prior to the release of the shot doing his impersonation of the famous Hightower pose?

That's why it is called Primary coverage area and not Exclusive coverage area.

Agree. The word primary might infer that there is a secondary, tertiary, and maybe even a quaternary, coverage area.

My quaternary coverage area, and thus, way down on my list of important coverage areas, usually involves either the concession stand, or hot single moms in the bleachers.

If you watch the trail official - he starts to signal a 3 pt attempt but quickly drops his arm...to me this means that he recognizes that lead has the play. And from leads body language, to me he picked up the play as soon as it crossed half court and never released the play to trail. It may be unusual to see L have to come this far out of his pca to pick up a secondary match up but in my opinion this is a great call and he did a good job of making sure everyone knew what he had.

I'm not sure why the trail decided to stop 2 steps across the division line.

I would say it applies more to this situation than the other play (block/charge JetMet put up) that occurred in the first few minutes of the game.

Here we have a foul in the last 20 seconds, that if not called, really hurts the team that is down and still has a chance to tie up the game.

I've been focusing recently on ignoring contact that is incidental to a blocked shot. In this play it looks like the player blocks the shot (gets hand level up to the ball), can someone explain why the resulting contact is not incidental?
